Ellen Kicks Off "Sexy Season 6"

You can almost feel Ellen DeGeneres' happiness through the screen.

The talk show host kicked off the new season of her show, dubbing it "Sexy Season 6" -- filled with firsts. It was the first time, she joked, she was doing the show "in a thong," and, of course, her first show as a married lady.

As you probably heard, Ellen tied the knot with gal pal Portia de Rossi last month, so the proud wife flashed her diamond wedding band to her season-opener crowd, who got on their feet and stood for the newlywed. The funny lady also managed to get in a little political humor in her monologue.

"Who knew John McCain and I would have something in common?," she said. "We both chose female running mates."

For a  closer look into Ellen and Portia's wedding, make sure you tune in today, when El shares all kinds of behind-the-scenes video footage and pics with the viewers.
